be a good reason. >> yeah. >> reporter: that's lawrence, who spent months tracking the world's biggest snakes, diving with them and filming them for nat geo wild's "secret brazil" series. a peek into the untamed world of brazil's savannas. there, the dry season pushes animals to desperation. the feeding frenzies of the piranha, the cannibalism of the croc's cousin. it's a place where anacondas can bite off more than they can chew. lawrence took us on a journey to the anaconda's heartland. nearly 1,000 miles from rio to remote bonito. >> hey! bonito. welcome. >> reporter: we unloaded the boats. the stream cool and clear. i'm kind of hoping we don't find one so i don't have to go in the water. >> don't say that. come on, man. >> reporter: you get to defend yourself with that and i have this. >> no, this is not what you think. >> reporter: and our date with an anaconda approaches. what are we looking for? >> if we see a thick branch that swims, that's the anaconda. >> reporter: we found the stream where just months before, lawrence found this monster. >> the head was giant. as thick as a
